Takeya vs Goodful Side-by-Side Comparison

Overall Verdict

The Takeya cold brew coffee maker and the Goodful are pretty similar. Both are tall plastic jugs for brewing in a refrigerator door. When compared for size, the Takeya is slightly taller with a more slender build. Therefore, it’s more likely to be a better fit for more types of refrigerators.

While the Takeya is made of high-grade Tritan plastic manufactured in the USA, there is little information included about the material quality of the Goodful. Apart from better build quality, the Takeya has a much more favorable brew ratio (1:9) compared to the Goodful (1:18) because it has a much longer brew core or filter. 

Furthermore, even with the grounds and filter inserted, you can lie the Takeya on its side and it’s even recommended to shake the vessel a few times during brewing. The Goodful is completely spill-proof except it can only brew standing up. The two lid designs are similar except the Goodful has a somewhat clunky feel to it.
